The National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC) Symposium is the longest running and most comprehensive Childhood Bereavement Symposium offered in the United States. The NAGC Symposium draws more than 400 children’s grief support professionals and volunteers from a variety of organizations throughout and outside the United States each year. The NAGC Symposium provides these individuals with learning experiences, concrete tools and connection with like-minded individuals. Attendees are able to return home at the end of the NAGC Symposium with new information and renewed energy as they continue to provide support to grieving children and teenagers in their local communities.
The Symposium is held in a different city in the United States each year to give professionals from around the country the opportunity to attend.
